"I am not so bad a person once you get to know me."
Just because Iggy Corso lives in public housing, has drug addicted parents, and got kicked out of high school doesn't mean he's a bad person. He's tired of life spiraling in the wrong direction, and wants to turn things around. Iggy hopes his only friend, Mo, can help him with his plan to change everyone's mind about him -- but Mo has serious problems of his own, and Iggy knows Mo will be a dead man if he doesn't get help.
Searching for solutions to his dilemmas, Iggy travels all over the city, finding himself in the lap of luxury, the grayness of a never-ending drug party, the haven of a chapel, and finally on the brink of a choice that will change his world forever.
